Welcome to the ESOL Program at
Timonium Elementary School!
All students in Baltimore County Public Schools born
outside the U.S. or who speak a language other than English at home may be evaluated
to see if they qualify for ESOL (English for Speakers of Other Languages)
services. Parents can schedule an intake
appointment at the ESOL Welcome Center at Old Court Middle School at
410-887-6752. In the case of incoming Kindergarten students, they may be
evaluated at Timonium by the ESOL teacher. Students who qualify will receive
small group instruction during the school day in order to help them acquire
English proficiency in listening, speaking, reading and writing. Students also receive accommodations for
instruction and assessment in their mainstream classrooms.
All ESOL students participate in the WIDA Access language
proficiency assessment in the spring to assess their progress and to see if
they are ready to exit the ESOL program for the following school year.

Timonium has two part time ESOL teachers, Diane Frijia email@example.com and Tianqi Abel firstname.lastname@example.org
